PHOTOS: John Mayer Drops Twitter, Picks Up Clown Pants

The name John Mayer was once synonymous with the 140-character lifecast site Twitter. Now it seems Mayer’s thoughts are bigger than Twitter gives him space (or credit) for. The “Daughters” singer announced yesterday via his Twitter that he has switched to using popular blog platform Tumblr, saying that he no longer wishes to open the “floodgate” to the world’s immediate approval disapproval (Ironically, that single Tumblr post gained over 3,000 “likes”, reblogs, and comments on the site). It seems Mayer made another swift decision this week, this time it was a wardrobe related decision. John donned what appear to be Sideshow Bob’s clown pants for a concert in New Zealand today. Flip through and judge for yourself.
